In this week’s Bulletin:
* Martin Bryant: ZOMBIE! Exceptional reporting and writing from Julie-Anne Davies.
* How much do you think its designer was paid to create the Rolling Stones’ lips logo?
* The law finally catches up with notorious Frank Hainsworth.
* The latest Continuing Crisis column reflects on the flexible nature of time in terms of societal improvement. Or something. Mentioned are Eric Aarons, the Fazl Abad Herald, Saddam Hussein, Che Guevara, Fidel Castro, Robert Fisk, Tony Jones, Anthony Hubbard, and John Highfield. Speaking of Fisk, he was recently profiled in New Zealand.
“I was thinking also that I used to play the violin quite well – I’ve got a violin back in Beirut and I am thinking of taking up playing again …”
He pauses because that confession has elicited a yelp from me. “Oh, I see,” he chuckles, “you are thinking of that scene in Master and Commander where the captain and the doctor play a duet…”
“No, I wasn’t … I was thinking of Robert Fisk playing the violin.”
Yelp, indeed. Also in The Bulletin: an Australian Grand Prix photo gallery.
